Tim O’Reilly, Hedge Fund Guy

I was watching a fascinating interview with hedge fund superstar (and all-around brilliant guy) David Shaw (of D.E. Shaw & Co.) today on Bloomberg TV, when it suddenly came to me: Shaw looks like someone I know … but who is it?

And then I realized who it was. Shaw is a ringer for fellow brilliant guy (and my friend) Tim O’Reilly, of Web 2.0, O’Reilly books, and technology conferences fame. Separated at birth? One wonders.


  1. I don’t really see it. But I’d be the last person who would.

  2. I say the same thing about my brothers all the time. You really think I look like them? I’m _much_ better looking.
